TCM is running a 24 hour Elvis marathon.

Also, the Today show ran a nice segment with an interview with Priscilla and Lisa who for the first time opened up about 8-16-77. Also a live on air tour of the home, but not the museum part.

I was hoping CBS might pull something out from the archives, but apparently not....

I would like a thread created for every single program airing on TV around the world.

The first one (on TCM) went on at 3 AM here, and I just happened to wake up. "Mister Mike, Mister MIke!!"

I just watched The Trouble with Girls (on TCM)... never seen it before today. While I enjoyed the 3 songs (but not signs of the zodiac) the movie itself was probably one I wouldn't watch again. There were a number of actors/actresses that I recognized... little Cindy Brady (pre-Brady Bunch), the little girl from Family Affair, Dabney Coleman (never knew he was in an Elvis movie!) and a few others. Interesting movie but that's as far as I would go.

There was a nice coverage in Brazilian TV's but always giving more attention to terrible impersonators than Elvis himself. :cry:

Here's an interview with Dabney Coleman

I didn’t work much with Elvis [Presley] on that, if at all. I was only there for a couple of weeks, and I don’t think we did any scenes together. But one day, one lunchtime, we played touch football. He had a little entourage, and they had, like, about a six-man team. And I gathered together some crew members, I guess. I was pretty good at touch football. I was All Intramural at the University of Texas three years in a row, ’cause I could catch the hell out of a ball. Anyway, my guys were… not good. So I ended up throwing the ball, tossing the ball, and I never had much of an arm, but I was better than these guys, that’s for goddamned sure. But we lined up, and we played for the lunch period. We beat ’em, and at the end of it, I remember as he passed me, he said [in a vague Elvis impression], “Hey, man, you got a hell of an arm.” [Laughs.] That was it. That’s all he said to me in two weeks. But I’ll take it. Coming from Elvis, that’s kind of classic. But that’s my only Elvis story! I must say, though, that he was always punctual and prepared and congenial. A consummate pro. He was no prima donna. He was all right.
